Vietnam combat veteran and two-time state chief justice Roy S. Moore welcomed the support of President Donald J. Trump Monday after the president endorsed the GOP nominee for the Alabama’s Dec. 12 special Senate election.

“I am honored to receive the support and endorsement of President Donald Trump,” said Moore, who is facing Democratic Senate candidate G. Douglas Jones.

“President Trump knows that the future of his conservative agenda in Congress hinges on this election,” he said. “I look forward to fighting alongside the president to strengthen our military, secure our border, protect our gun rights, defend the sanctity of life and confirm conservative judges to courts around this nation.”

Moore confirmed that the president called him from Air Force One with words of encouragement.

“We had a good conversation over the phone today and are working together towards conservative victory on Dec. 12,” he said.

Trump called him a “fighter” and told him that he was eager to have Moore fighting for his agenda in Washington, the judge said. At the end of the call, the president said: “Go get ’em, Roy!”

Moore’s Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead said he was confident that Moore would win the Senate seat.

“Alabama voters overwhelmingly rejected Hillary Clinton last November and will overwhelmingly reject her protege, Doug Jones, next week,” he said. “We are ready to support President Trump‘s conservative, America First agenda, Drain the Swamp, and Make America Great Again.”

The president’s phone call and endorsement came the day before his former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon is slated Tuesday to appear with Moore at a rally with supporters at Fairhope’s Oak Hollow Farm.

In the Big League-Gravis poll posted Tuesday, Moore trailed Jones with 42 percent to Jones’ 48 percent.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
